Vancouver and Sisters, Oregon

Our cruise finished at 7am wednesday morning, we had breakfast and left ship at 0900hrs, caught a cab to our hotel, then set of to explore, we walked back down to Canada bay and did the Canada fly over, what a thrilling ride, I throughly enjoyed the experience, but I must say DH does not do roller coaster rides and was not happy with me pressuring him to do it.  He only closed his eyes twice, it was a tame ride anyway.

Goodbye Volandam, it was a great cruise.

Our canada fly over experience 

When we were in Canada, they celebrated Canada day on the 1st July, 150 years since the constitution 

The famous gastown clock.
After our Canada fly over experience we caught a cab to a Walmart to try and get our son some Jiff peanut butter, well after a 30min drive there and back and $60 later, Walmart only sold Kraft peanut butter and to top it off, I did not get my Alien's glue so not a happy  camper. I will not mention DH's comments.
After this little venture we explored Gastown and had to walk through a film set. A TV series called, "Man in a high castle" was being shot, the streets looked like the 1950's.

A street scene

Some actors

Some great vintage cars on the street.

This is our final day in CANADA, we have a very early flight to San Francisco, then Redmond, Oregon 

Goodbye Canada, until we meet again.
Early rise at 0300hrs, to catch a cab to the airport for our flight to San Francisco, Redmond, then road it to Sisters.
Upon landing in Redmond, we had organised enviroshuttle to get us to Sisters to our air B & B, after dropping off our bags, meeting our host, we then set off to explore the town.

I am here, we arrived on the Thursday, so have a few days to explore before saturday.

Signs all over for the big day, always the second Saturday in July.

First stop and where some money was seriously dropped, quite busy, a few quilters in town already, DH waited by sitting outside and entertaining some hubbies as well as some quilters, there was a lot of quilts already hung in some shops.
My next post will be on the quilt show.
